Condolence & Memory Journal

I, Unfortunately, even at my best, can be the most selfish person I know to exsist.
There's nothing that will make you get more real about life than near death expitiences. Very quickly, you understand, there is a God, and you're not him. But, you also understand how very much he loves you.
In March, I was in a car that spun out of control on the hoghway in heavy trafic, left without a scrape. The guy who came to help, his name was Gabriel, like the angel in the Bible.. I saw a quick vision of my friend, Jason, while my eyes were closed. I wanted to go... As sure as I'm setting here, he said, "Not Yet." Shortly there after. I saw Phyllis and Lindell, who I had been praying to see.. Not many words were spoken, but the warmth, the smiles, the tenderness... It blessed me so, and I can only pray it did the same for them... Sometimes, the damage is so great, you just cant go back, but you can trust the Lord.... I said I would never be this person, and I'm exaxly who I said I'd never be. But, changing moment to moment, fighting back.. It was eaiser to live as though he were with me than to accept he was taken. Easier to create a fantacy than to live in reality.
He lives on, in my heart. I have a horse I go ride. It helps me grieve, and in some ways, feel close to Jason. I know he'd love to see me ride. He can see... To anyone I have hurt through the years, I am so sorry. Know that I have hurt myself more. Please accept my prayers and love. Sorry it's been so messed up, but it's all I've had to give.
I love you. Jason!

Love Me
When the future is a memory. When I'm not there when you reach for me. Love me.
When the past is all you have, don't be afraid to look back.
When life moves on, as it will, know that I am with you still.
When you wonder what I would say, know it's only a whisper away.
Love me. Live for me. Be all that I didnt get to be.
Hold me, close to your heart. See me, everywhere you are.
I know tthis isnt what you thought it would be. But you will find the strength to believe,
Be mad, be sad, but be hapoy when you can, knowing I rest in the maker's hands.
Be nothing at all. Just remember love will take you through it all.
Set the wind to your sails, and know that love will never fail.
Know that this is all I'll ever need.
Love me.

This Side Of Goodbye
Questions Why, Pain I Can't Hide, Tears I
Have To cry, On This Side Of Goodbye.
But Then I See You, On The Other Side, And I Smile, Even On This Side Of Goodbye.
This Side Of Goodbye, It Seems It Will Always Be Wrong, And Never Be Made Right. But Then I Go To My Knees With Faith In God Who Holds The Sky, And I Can Believe, Even On This Side Of Goodbye.
This Side Of Goodbye, It's Sad, And Hurts Real Bad, But I Laugh, Cause i Know Where You're At. I Know You're Alright, And I Rejoice, Even On This Side Of Goodbye.
This Side Of Goodbye, It Will Pass Away With Time, And We'll Meet Again, On The Other Side Of Goodbye. I Have Hope, Even On This Side Of Goodbye.
Somehow I"ve thought about you a lot lately. I wanted to tell you how good it was to see your mom and Lindell at work. Wow, what a blessing! And you were there with us, I know you were! I came home that night, and slept like I hadn't slept in years. I could use a thousand words, and none could ever say what that meant for me. Even if we never meeet again, that was enough. I love them so, and you.
I wanted to tell you, you don't have to look after me so much now. There's no doubt to me you've been an angel for me, and I appreciate it, but I'm alright. I'm coming home soon.
Prayers always for everybody to heal as you and God would have them to heal. I pray so hard, most especially for your babygirl. With Faith In Christ, This Is Only One Side Of Goodbye.

Today, my brother's transmission was acting up, and his car hydroplained. We spun with ongoing trafic, including two smi trucks, but were never hit, and went off the road in mud. A man came to help us, named Gabriel, like in the Bible. I thought that was so cool! I remember just holding my brother's hannd, being pretty sure One or both of us was going to die, but having no fear. We're both ready now. When I closed my eyes, I'm pretty sure I could see you just for a moment. You had a smile, and it made me smile. Thank you!
You were a brother to me at a time when my brother couldn't be a brother to me. You were my bestfriend, and I loved you. I'm never gonna be "okay" with it. It's always gonna hurt. But even though your gone, I have still felt you when I needed you the most, like today. God has been so near to me, and good to me.
I miss you, Jason.
Your Babygirl is precious, and I'll pray for her, and your whole family everyday, I promise!
I'm very sorry for the harm I did.
Starting a job Monday morning! Nervous, but very excited!!
Wish you was here!!!.............
Rest In Peace!

Miss you still, always will. There's a whole only you could fill. These are the times when God is so real. Peace, be still. Faith is so real. Even though you're gone, you're with me still. Prayers for all who this pain have to feel. Please know Heaven is so real, and I pray for you still, and always will.

Racheal, Lockie and I were terribly saddened to hear of Jason's accident and passing. We send our love and prayers. My son, Casey, and Jason were best of friends in high school where I was an Assistant Principal when they were students. Lockie and I have fond memories of Jason being at our house with Casey, and of what a kind and loving young man he was. We are in Phoenix, AZ this time of year and regret not being able to be in Benton for the visitation and services. Lean on Jesus Racheal in this most difficult time - Lockie and I will be praying for you and the baby.
God Bless, Dan & Lockie Maxberry

My heart is broken. There are no words to express how terribly sad I am, not only for us as Jason's family, but for everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.

I have worked for Metro for soon-to-be five years, and I am proud to say I knew Jason for all these years not only as a "boss" but as a friend. He was always upbeat whenever I talked to him, always willing to listen, and he was ALWAYS willing to help someone in need. For example, when my car died a couple of weeks ago while I was on my way to work in Mayfield, and I called him. He was thankfully close by, and he was sweet enough to take me to work that night. I will never forget his kindness and I will miss him friendship.

I met Jason a few years ago. He was very nice and polite. My heart goes out to Rachel his wife and his family. In 2009 my husband Bruce and I were in a motorcycle accident which resulted in the death of my husband. It is a very tragic accident please remember that God is always with you and he never will forsake you. My prayers go out to you Rachel and your family. I have been where you are at. May you find peace in knowing that Jason is in Heaven waiting. May God hold you all safely in his arms and bring you the comfort you need.

Man you were top notch in my book. A part of me is gone I know that we were cousins but I have always tought of you as my brother. I love you and I am going to miss you very much. The thing that I keep telling my self is that you are now with the three greatest people in the world. God, Grama, and Papa. I will be sure to let the baby know how good of a person that you are and that how much you loved him or her. I know that you would have been a great DAD. I love you my brother.

I am sad to say i didnt get to know jason as well as i could have. And the last memory i have of him is him telling me about work. Jason was always kind and helpful and very friendly. To have lost him so early is a huge loss to the world. I feel bad that i can only offer my condolances through here and not in person. To jasons family i am extreamly sorry for the loss of such a huge person in your life.
